sulav2Sulav Aryal the boy from Nepal - EVS in Bulgaria

''Snap", you heard it right. That was the sound of my two months stay passing by, like snap of my fingers, like whizzing Pazardjik breeze. We went to Park Island today. Went to see the clock and saw the broken clock. That broken clock was for me a metaphor, like somebody here tried to stop the time for me, but of course good times come to an end and change is the only constant. So I leave. I leave with a sense of satisfaction and lots of riches. Riches in the form of best of memories and lifelong friends. Let me reflect back on the times I spent here. Boy, I tell you these were best times of my life for sure.

First thing I noticed was how easy going our boss was Ivo, more a friend then a boss, always concerned about his volunteers a compassionate human being. More you know him and his story more you like him. I think world needs more people like him to be a better place to live.

kariFrom Argentina to Pazardjik - This is my EVS

EVS project in Pazardjik, Bulgaria.

by Karina Cáceres

First let’s know something about me. My name is Karina Cáceres, I am 25 years old, I was born in Assumption-Paraguay. Paraguay is a small country landlocked in central South America, bordered by Argentina to the south and southwest, Brazil to the east and northeast, and Bolivia to the northwest. When I was 18 years old I went to live in Argentina for my studies in International Relations at the Pontifical Catholic University of Buenos Aires. There is a great Paraguayan community. Buenos Aires is big city, very cosmopolitan and cultural with theaters, bookstores, libraries, bars and cafes. Students of different continents like very much and go there because you have opportunities to work and study and have fun, it’s “The Paris of South America”.

MattyMy Internship in Pazardjik, Bulgaria

by Matthew Osahriemen Osahenrumwen

In 2014, I decided to do an internship in Bulgaria. I contacted a lot of organization to start an application for my internship. The first step of the application process is the resume, and it was reviewed, but I was lucky to be accepted by Association Focus-European Centre for Development. Where I work in a daily centre for disabled people, and this way I have been able to improve my skills and know more about becoming a social worker and in the future if I want to work with disabled people, trust me I will do my job very well, because I have been able to gain more experience.
